Welcome to the arts society Gibraltar

Hello Members and Fellow Art Lovers

We have a surprise treat for you

Profesor Jeremy Black MBE has spoken to us before and he was a huge success, a very well informed and experienced speaker, we have the honour of him coming to talk to us on 22nd September 2023.

His subject is The World of James Bond, which I know will be of great interest to many of you.

Jeremy Black offers a historian’s interpretation from the perspective of the late 2010s, assessing James Bond in terms of the greatly changing world order of the Bond years—a lifetime that stretches from 1953, when the first novel appeared, to the present. 

Jeremy Black studied at Queens College Cambridge, St Johns Oxford before joining University of Durham as a lecturer where he got hid PHD and later became a professor 

He went on to become Professor of History at the University of Exeter and is senior Fellow of History at the University of Exeter and is a senior Fellow at The Center for the study of America and the West at the Foreign Policy Institute In Philadelphia USA

He is the author of over 180 books , principally but not exclusively on 18th century British Politics and international relations and has been described by one commentator as “the most prolific historical scholar of our age”

The Cruz Herrera Museum in La Linea.

Wednesday 14th June members of the Art Society enjoyed a visit to The Cruz Herrera Museum in La Linea.
20 of us marched across the boarder and really enjoyed looking at all the exhibits of La Linea’s exceptional artist Jose Cruz Herrera.
Gerry Turpin gave us a brief talk on the artist’s history, then we were free to wonder around the beautiful museum formally a home of the family Saccone.
We were also delighted to see a period dress exhibition which was displayed at the time of our visit.
14 of us all ended the evening at a favourite tapas bar in La Linea near the statue commemorating one of Herrera’s famous paintings

Coming soon our 2023/24 SEASON

Our first talk is on 18 October and as usual will be held at the beautiful Garrison Library.

Tyler Butterworth will be giving the illustrated talk, An Actors Life for Me. Or A Bit of a Carry On.

Drawing on his own experiences as both a child and adult actor, Tyler reveals the pains and the pleasures of a career in the theatre, and takes us through the various intricate processes of putting on a play from the actor’s perspective, from the casting session to the curtain call, and all stops in between.

On the way, he reveals how props can let you down at crucial moments, how actors survive when out of work, and how to deal with stage nudity.
